SUSPENDED: Port expansions shelved

A MAJOR Balearic construction project of ten new yachting marinas with around 2,000 moorings has been shelved.

In Mallorca, extensions to the Arenal, Palmanova, Pollensa and Puerto Portals sailing clubs were suspended by government authorities, with concerns raised over their environmental impact.

SUSPENDED: Port expansions shelved

Club Nautico Arenal had hoped to expand by 87,774 square metres, adding 147 new moorings.

It had hoped to accommodate boats with a length of 20 to 30 metres.

Altogether, around half a million square metres of coastal and marine space would have been built on in Mallorca, Menorca and Ibiza.

In Menorca, proposed building work on the Cala en Bosch club has also been halted.

Two brand new marinas in Ibiza at Portinatx and Port Ferrat were scrapped, along with three in Fornells in Menorca.

There are 9,519 moorings in the Balearic Islands already, while the extensions would have added around 20% more.
